Soon the set of their gear will be equal to the cost of a small plane . World has gone mad ...
SJW vegans is trying to push through laws to increase taxes on meats and animal products to force consumers away. Leather jackets will only go up in price from now on and may one day carry a health warning to think of all the animal slaughtered for our escapist vanity

USD$995 for a pair of 'Boondockers'. Madness.
Just looked at Real McCoys site and yes some really nice different gear but prices that make me wonder how much they might sell on any given day to keep a store in a premium site like Covent Garden going? Ludicrously expensive.
I bought a pair of their ridiculously priced sweat pants at Christmas, they're very nice. What I also noticed was how quickly they sold out, so somebody apart from me must be buying.
What could they charge for sweat pants?
You know … the funny thing is that by just wearing it, there is no indication it's a "Real Mc Coy's" B-3. No emblem or anything. Unless, you're going to carry your receipt and show it to everyone who admires it. So, who's going to know. Hardcore Japanese collectors only.
North of $250
For the same sort of money you can get one of Nigel Cabourn's Royal National Lifeboat Association Hooded Irvin.........and no. I'd not heard of these before either

Not wishing to piss on McCoys parade but when you ask this sort of £££ you ask for your workmanship to be looked at properly
I'll guarantee that the sewing on an Aero B-3 will be better than on the B-3 pictured
Justy look at the wobble and crumpling on the zipper, not fitted tightly enough, a common error not only on McCoy,usually with Crown zippers.
The sewing on the yoke across the back is horrible, the waistband stitching isn't that good either
Not the sort of finish Aero's lads would be happy with
Damn, Nick! Were you drinkin'?
I wish my B-3 had orange sheepskin... NOT!
I wish I had that excuse
Groovy man, takes me right back......
Ridiculously overpriced. In fact stupidly so. Inaccurate from the standpoint of a repro of a wartime contract and therefore begs the question, why so much? The chumps splashing out this much on this jacket are paying for the label - I'd personally disagree that RM is worthy of the whole luxury clothing label upcharge and also whether the fact that RM stuff of this nature is worth a premium price tag but obviously some dipshit is willing to cough up the cash for it otherwise they wouldn't have listed it for so much.
The icing on the cake? An experienced jacket maker in the business for years like Ken, took one look at the pics and called out the shitty tailoring and build quality. I bet there's all manner of "experts" who'll be talking on various fansites and fora about how it's worth the money because of the incredible quality, etc, etc. Which just goes to show how many ignorant idiots are willing to fork out this kind of price for a jacket which is, let's me honest, not very accurate but worst of all, not even very well made.
Lets not forget 20% VAT on top of this crap .
Prices include VAT in UK shops
We have lots of these here in Hamburg as well.
There was a shop where they sold some RRL stuff at decent prices....last couple of times I went there, all their stuff was higher priced and sizes were between XXS and L....
Owner told me "Nah, we don't order any larger sizes, as most of our customers come from China and the Emirates....". It's a business decision, but sometimes feels like "reversed discrimination"...
